AECP FY12?

  1. 0
    Hello all! I am new to this site so if I somehow screwed up the search function and there is already a thread on this (I could not find one) please let me know! I was accepted into AECP FY2012 and was wondering if anyone else on here had been as well? Or for that matter, if anyone in the last couple FY's has any words of wisdom, I would truly appreciate it. I would love to hear some other peoples school options that they are considering? My top school is Austin Peay as it is within 50 miles of a military post, does not require chem (as I did not take it and do not want to start now), and is close to where my husband will be (Fort Stewart). I found all Georgia schools required chem and I just don't have the time to take it with the classes that ASPU is asking me to take. So,..... anyone out there?

    I did the AECP from 99-01 and loved it! I went to ODU in Norfolk, VA and did their weekend nursing program. They let us finsih any pre-req's we had left during the week. It is really nice. Full pay and bennies and no military commitments. I just had an AER every year and did one PT test. Got an assignment to Germany afterwards .

    Isn't Austin Peay in TN? Ft. Stewart is probably a good 10 hours from there, isn't it?

    Congrats on getting accepted!!

    Oh it is definitely about 10 hours away but it is the closest I could get to Stewart...He would potentially be deploying not long after I would start school so it wouldn't be too bad given how little time we would be stationed apart. We are however, now hearing that due to the hubby's profile he might get transferred back to MEDDAC. If that is the case, he would try to come with me to Clarksville. He was only staying put to deploy but if that isn't going to happen, he might as well come with me

    Hi Jennifer,

    I hope you receive this message soon.....I really need some assistance in getting started with the AECP application process. I cant find a recruiter (Im in the army reserve) and the recruiter that commissioned me says to look on the website. I received a lot of helpful info on this site before I went to OBC (BOLC) So I figured I look on this site.....and I found your post. I live in the NYC area and would like to eventually become a psychiatric nurse. Who should I contact for an application? Is the application downloadable on-line? Are there any online nursing programs that are eligible? Are there any nursing schools (that you know of) in NY that fit the tuition requirements?
    I have a Masters in Clincal Social Work already and wanted to apply that to Nursing.

    Thanks in advance
    my email is lnicholson713@gmail.com

    If you're already commissioned as an officer, I don't think you qualify for AECP ... it's the AMEDD Enlisted Commissioning Program, for enlisted personnel. If you have AKO access (which you should, as a reservist), the page for AECP is here: https://www.us.army.mil/suite/page/621795

    If you already have an Masters, I'm also not sure you can get reimbursed for a lower level degree like a BSN.

    I will be starting school fall 2012. I have been accepted into Old Dominion and waiting to hear back from Colorado and Maryland. Maryland is my number one choice. I am excited to be going into the Corps and am glad I got in under FY12, with all the military cut backs I wouldn't be surprised if they trimmed the fat on some of these programs. Can't wait to meet you folks!

    I went to ODU! You would love it! Do they still offer the weekend program??

    I'm not sure if they still offer the weekend program. I will be going full time for two years before going to BOLC. I am really excited to start, it has been a really long process. I have heard really good things about Old Dominion and it was easy to get my paperwork done with them because they work with so many soldiers. With that said, I own my house in Baltimore and life would be so much easier to go to the Baltimore Campus of University of Maryland.

    How long have you been in?
